The Best Kajal/Kohl Pencils of 2019

The Best Kajal of 2019

Best Kajal/Kohl in India 2019

This is something that almost every Indian girl uses. Many don’t even consider it to be part of make up and grooming. I have heard women claim kajal is good and cooling for your eyes….yeah right! While the Western world seem to love their mascaras and brow pencils, the Indian woman unequivocally keeps this face transformer handy. I have tried so many kohl pencils and crayons, the cheapest variety to the insanely expensive. Well, I’m here to tell you that the expensive ones made me want to to cry. Most of them were not worth the pennies I spent. They smudged and weren’t as dark as kajal should be; but at least they were smooth. I will definitely review them later in another post. I don’t intend confusing you with too many reviews and choices. So here is my list of the most amazing kajals available in India.

Without eye makeup
VERDICT : Colorbar Just Smoky has a beautifully balanced, very charcoal matte effect but is a little expensive and needs to be sharpened. Maybelline Colossal Super Black is also matte, but is very dark and self-sharpening. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal is very dark too but a bit glossy and smudges a bit, the cheapest of these three awesome kohls.
